What is Corneal Abrasion?

A Corneal Abrasion is a minor scratch to the corneal. Any contact to the eye such as an animal claw, a fingernail, dust, and specs of metal and sand can cause a scratch to the corneal. You can prevent corneal abrasion by wearing protective eye wear while mowing the grass, playing sports or working with tools. After an examination of the corneal abrasion our doctors at Eyesight And Surgery will decide if you need a antibiotic to treat the infection or prescription drops to relieve the pain.
